Torayvino Compact Faucet-Mounted Water Purifier

As a mom, I always make sure that my family stays healthy by following and doing certain routine. First on the list is giving my loved ones clean drinking water so we order from distilled water from a nearby water station because I believe that healthy lifestyle begins with 99.99% bacteria-free purified water at home. We spend so much from distilled water delivery for about P1,500 a month. It good to know that we now have an easier, more effective alternative way at having really clean drinking water, without any of the hassles of overspending, unsafe handling, and unclean bottles via Torayvino compact faucet-mounted water purifier.

Torayvino compact faucet-mounted water purifier, an easy-to-use water filtration system from Japan that could eliminate bacteria that causes diseases such as amoebiasis, cholera, and diarrhea, among many others. The water filter is compact enough to fit in an individual’s palm, but works perfectly at filtering out chlorine and other substances that might bring about any untoward smell, taste, or turbidity (color) in your water.  Even better, essential minerals that are naturally found in water are retained. 

Torayvino comes from a company called Toray Industries, Inc.  Established in 1926, it has presence in over 20 countries (including USA, UK, China), with some 46,000 employees.  It has a 66 percent market share among faucet-mounted filtration systems in Japan, which says a lot about how reliable and effective the product is.

Torayvino produces 99.99% bacteria-free water through a 4-stage filtration system: The pre-screen removes impurities bigger than 465um such as rust, sands, sediment, and particles; while the second screen removes impurities bigger than 114um, those that couldn’t be removed by prescreen.  The granular activated carbon strongly removes residual chlorine, harmful chemicals, and bad odor; while the hollow fiber membrane precisely removes contaminants in the 0.1um unit such as bacteria, rust, turbidity, coliform bacili, microorganisms, and microscopic impurities. 

The good thing about the Torayvino water filter is that it comes with different attachments that ensure you’ll be able to use it with basically any faucet you may have.  Installing it requires no knowledge in plumbing, and running it needs no electricity.

A Torayvino faucet-mounded water filter could provide up to 1,500 liters of purified water.  To put that in perspective, that’s about three to five months of regular use for a household with four individuals.  After that, you need to change the cartridge only, not the whole unit.

At P1,980 for the whole unit (and P1,380 for one cartridge), that is a great deal.  That means clean and safe drinking water at only P0.92 per liter, as opposed to about P1.85 per liter from water-refilling stations. 

Initially at the prescreen process, impurities bigger than 465 microns, such as rust, sands, sediment and particles are removed.  Those bigger than 114 microns will then be taken away in the second screen.  Next, the water will pass through the granular activated carbon, which efficiently removes residual chlorine, harmful chemicals and bad odor. 

Finally, the optimal hollow fiber membrane structure removes contaminants larger than 0.1 micron, such as bacteria and other microorganisms, rust, turbidity, and microscopic impurities.  Such technology, which is likewise used in dialysis machines and artificial kidneys, provides low elution and high flow rate of water.  While it undergoes a stringent filtration process, calcium, magnesium and other essential minerals are retained.

Torayvino Water Purifier is manufactured by a diversified company called Toray Industries, Inc. with presence in Asia, Europe, Middle East, North America, Central America and South America.  This is the leading brand in Japan, with 66 percent share of the market for the faucet-mounted type.

Torayvino Water Purifier conforms with the Japan Industrial Standards and is also certified and approved by the Philippine Department of Health.  Distributed in the Philippines by Moduvi, Inc. it is now available in modern hardwares like True Value and All Home, as well as condo-partners.

Truly a very relevant product for the Philippine market today.
